It’s worse that we thought.
Last week, I warned you about a proposed ban on AR-15’s in St. Louis, being pushed by notoriously anti-gun Alderwoman Lyda Krewson.
Now that the bill (BB195) has been published, we know a lot more about Krewson’s radical plans for your Second Amendment rights.
To be blunt, she wants to gut your ability to defend yourself and your loved ones from violent criminals — continuing the same failed policies that have seen gun owners booted from office nationwide earlier this month.
Of course, as you and I both know, taking guns away from law abiding citizens only makes it easier for armed thugs and gang members to attack us!
It’s never been more important that law abiding citizens have the means to defend themselves.
Just last week we watched, in shock, as the news reported a St. Louis police officer had been shot, from ambush, by a violent criminal bent on murder.
He was willing to attack this officer knowing he was wearing body armor and was armed.
How much more likely would these criminals be to attack you and I if they knew we were likely unarmed?
That’s why I hope you’ll sign the petition that I’ll link you to in a moment, calling on the Board of Alderman to vote this legislation down! More on that in a moment.
As I told you, Krewson’s bill is far worse than just banning AR-15’s.
She’s going after every semi-automatic firearm that holds more than 5 rounds of ammo and has a detachable magazine!
The Glock 19 your spouse carries for self-defense, the AR-15 you keep at home for home defense, the Ruger 10/22 you use to teach your children to shoot with — all of them would be illegal to possess in St. Louis under this proposal!
As you and I both know, study after study has proven that the best way to reduce violent crime is to put more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens!
The best way to continue St. Louis’s out-of-control problem with murder and violent crime, is to disarm you and me and let armed criminals roam the streets knowing that you and I are helpless.
St. Louis is already known to be hostile to law abiding gun owners and has had the strictest laws in the state at the local level.
Yet, despite their gun control, the city was rocked by a shocking 188 murders last year alone!
Rather than admit they were wrong and work to make St. Louis a pro-gun community which would greatly reduce crime, Krewson and her pals are making it clear that gun owners are not wanted or allowed in ‘their city.’
You see, not only is she calling for a ban on all future sales of semi-autos that hold more than 5 rounds and have a detachable magazine, she’s going after any firearm that you currently own as well.
And, if you don’t surrender them in the manner she prescribes within 60 days of this bill passing, Krewson wants to lock you up in jail!
Jail time, for owning a firearm that you’re legally allowed to possess.
So please, sign the petition calling on the other 27 Aldermen to oppose this radical measure and protect the Second Amendment.
Please don’t set this email aside and forget to take action just because you don’t live in metro St. Louis! I need you to stand with us.
These Aldermen are ambitious, and often they want much higher elected positions within our state.
In fact, Adlerwoman Krewson herself just announced her bid to be the next mayor of St. Louis.
They know that should they run for higher office, having voted for such aggressive gun control when in lower office as an Alderman, would have devastating consequences — especially in light of the election results here in Missouri on Nov. 8!
So please, whether you live in St. Louis or not, sign this petition right away so that I can demonstrate to the Board of Alderman that Missouri gun owners are organized and are willing to hold any elected official accountable who attacks our freedoms. (Hotlink)
Once you’ve signed your petition, please consider a contribution to the Missouri Firearms Coalition so we can mobilize as many gun owners as possible to this fight using our email, mail and social media programs.
We know how to reach out to gun owners, but we need your help to do it!
Anti-gunners like Krewson and her pals never rest. They are always testing us, always looking to see what they can get away with and what will make gun owners fight back.
Your fellow gun owners in St. Louis are asking for your help — please stand with them by taking action today!
Dr. Curt Frazier
Chairman of the Board
P.S. St. Louis Alderwoman Lyda Krewson is as tone deaf as she is ambitious as she starts her bid to be the next Mayor of St. Louis.
That’s because she’s launching an all-out assault on the Second Amendment, despite the election results that clearly show Missourians reject these failed policies.
Krewson’s proposal (Board Bill 195) makes it a crime to possess any semi-automatic firearm with a detachable magazine, capable of holding more than 5 rounds!
Your wife’s handgun, your Ruger 10/22, your AR-15, and hundreds of other types of defensive firearms would have to be turned in — and you’d be facing prison time if you didn’t — within 60 days of this proposal becoming law.
So please, sign the petition that I’ve prepared for you below, calling on the Board of Alderman to vote “NO” on BB195!
